Have a Wonderful 4th of July

2015-6-27 Front entry for July 4 Verticle

Our flag is so beautiful, it makes my heart sing. It’s a great privilege to live in the United States of America.  God Bless our Founding Fathers and all of the Military personnel who protect our Freedom. Thanks to them, their families and the sacrifices they’ve made we can celebrate the 4th of July.  So while you are having a good time, cooking out and watching fireworks, please take a moment to say a prayer for our country and our servicemen. Enjoy your Freedom and have a HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

OK! Got a VIDEO today of painting Chief Red Fish’s face. The skin tones are made of mixes of Terra Rosa + MUD (Ultramarine Blue + Alizarin Crimson) + White, Terra Rosa + Cerulean Blue + White and Terra Rosa + White. A little Cadmium Red Light is added into the mixes for the cheeks and nose. Cerulean Blue + White is dragged over the lower face to make it cooler.

The hands are painted using the same mixtures, but rendered with less detail so they won’t draw the viewer’s attention. I want the main focal point to be the rugged face of Chief Red Fish.

The shadows of the heavy woven shirt are Cobalt Blue + MUD + White. Cobalt Blue + White is used for the highlights on the folds.

SF3015 Chief Red Fish

Red Fish was a chief of the Oglala Lakota tribe in the 1840s. His daughter, Eva Little Chief, was kidnapped by the Crow after he’d made a disastrous, unprovoked raid upon them in 1848.
